GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Three boys have signed up for the Explorer Post being organized by Greencastle Patrolman Terry DeWitt.
The goal of the post will be to give young people interested in a career in police work an idea of what the work is like.
The post is open to boys and girls ages 13 to 18, DeWitt said.
His recruitment efforts have been aimed at students in the Greencastle-Antrim School District, he said.
"I'd like to keep it small for now to see how things go," DeWitt said.
Eventually, DeWitt wants the post to have about 10 members.
The post has met three times at Borough Hall, he said. The Scouts learned how the police fingerprint system works, he said.
The Explorers will take part next month in a traffic survey to find out how many motorists are using seat belts, he said. They will stand on busy corners and check cars for belt use, DeWitt said. The results of the survey will be turned over to the Borough Council, he said.
